I sold my 10 year old TWH Spirit. I had him since he was 18 mo. Old and broke him myself. He has been a very good horse. He went to a very good home and I know that he will be taken care of but I still have a lump in my throat and a sickly feeling in my stomach. I keep reminding myself that it is the best thing for him, but it still has been hard. I have another horse my husband wants me to sell and I have had her since she was 8 mo. Old. He has ask me to put her on the internet and I have made every excuss why I haven't done it. She is also a beautiful, gentle horse and needs a loving home. I hate that we have had a drought this year and can't find enough hay to feed all our horses. He has already sold his extra horses were is down to two horses, his show horse and then his trail horse. I am suppose to do the same.
I am writing this to help me give over the sad feeling that I am feeling. My husband doesn't seem to understand that I miss this horse very deeply. I have been trying not to cry but it feels like I have lost a family member. I keep telling myself that he is going to be very happy there and his new owner already loves him. Has anyone sold a horse and went through similar feelings?
What's even worse I am going to have to sell another family member and I am hoping that I can find a good home for her.
